At Anglia Tours, each and every one of our school trips are designed specifically to enrich a student’s learning experience, whatever their chosen subject. After all, we believe that the best way for a child to learn is by stepping out of the classroom.
Our series of school trips to London cover a cross section of different curriculums, with each offering eye-opening insights into various periods of the capital’s often infamous past.
For schools looking for an enriching trip for their students, our guided History tours to London are crafted to support your learning objectives. Plus, accompanying excursions have been hand-selected by our tour specialists specifically to enhance your teaching plans.
Those looking to delve into Whitechapel’s history need look no further than our Crime, Policing and the Inner City itinerary. Adhering to curriculums based around Pearson Edexcel’s GCSE History Option 10, we have created an exciting introduction to Whitechapel c1870-1900 which offers insight into the period through hands-on activities.
Helping students to visualise the period’s historical events, this trip focuses on the case study of Jack the Ripper and looks in closer detail at the policing of the area – including developments in technique of the Metropolitan Police, the City of London Police and Scotland Yard.
Moving forward in the city’s timeline, another itinerary of interest to history classes is our London & the Second World War tour. Through a closer look at key landmarks, as well as entry to the Museum of London Docklands, this one day tour looks at the terrifying series of events that unfolded in the Capital from 1939-1945 – a truly fascinating case study for any student covering WW2 subjects ranging from the Blitz to the V-weapons.
For those more focused on learning more specifically about the Blitz, our Home Front experience allows students to learn about these particular WW2 events in fascinating detail. This option allows teachers to tailor their itinerary specifically to students’ needs – something which can prove to be highly beneficial.
Whether choosing for our team of historical interpreters to visit your school to present a session in periodical dress, or heading on a guided walking tour of London to see where the first German bomb fell, the outcome is sure to be an entirely different approach to classic curriculums.
Whatever your subject, we can arrange tailor-made tours that are suited to your students. Our tours are endorsed by examination boards, and are designed to enhance the teaching and learning process for Pearson Edexcel qualifications.
